Visual Studio SignTool.exe Not Found

Basically, for VS 2015, this would be:

  • Open Programs and Features
  • Select “Microsoft Visual Studio 2015” and click “Change”
  • Press “Modify” to progress to Features options
  • Select “Windows and Web Development”, then tick “ClickOnce Publishing Tools” for installation
  • Then “Next” and then “Update”

The signtool.exe appeared after also installing the sdk:

If you do not care about sign your program when you publish, just right click your project then choose Properties –> Signing –> un-check Sign the ClickOnce manifest .
